I am in thawing out my hands.  I am processing my deer in my unheated garage and it is about 5F outside.

 Danno was it you who told me about putting rib meat in canning jars with bbq sauce and being able to just pick the all the tallow off the top when you open the can to use it?  Was that cheap kraft type sauce or did you make your own?  I am about done with this deer.  I have a buck tag to fill yet Saturday so need to clear the gambrel.  The rut is on and even an old man in a tree stand where I can drive up to the carcass might get lucky and get a good one.
It was me Vance and we do make our own but open pit will work.   Try it you'll like it and congrats on success

i was tagged out on bucks by nov.9 in georgia (we get two a year) and i'm not taking any does unless i hunt alabama later in the year.  i questioned myself before i shot the second one because it was so early in the season.  i'm glad i took him now because i've been too sick to hunt for a couple of weeks and he's had a messed up rack for the last two years (leg injury) and i had told myself this summer that if i saw him i should shoot him.  a lot of hunters in georgia claim they aren't seeing deer but i saw at least a couple every time i sat and i've had plenty on camera since then.  we were so overpopulated 15 years ago that i think a lot of the hunters got spoiled.  when i was a kid you could hunt an entire season and only see 3 or 4 deer, now guys are mad if they don't see 3 or 4 140 class (that's a pretty good deer down here) deer every time they sit.

muzzle loader starts friday.  I've got 2 doe tags left.   One will be made into corned venison and deer pastrami along with other fun stuf.  A couple of years ago I started giving my oldest son a deer and a small freezer for Xmas.  I used to just give him money but this way I know they will be eating so the 2nd will be going there

danno, it takes two of our deer to make one of yours.  every now and then we get one that weighs more than 250 but most come in well under 200 pounds.

I think we're allowed one deer a day in Alabama. Our doe season is at least a month long (I think). I quit deer hunting for a couple of reasons. One, I don't have the room for all that meat. The last time I went hunting other folks were on our property. That could have went bad if they thought I was a deer. We had about six that used to come up in our garden right around dark. I was feeding them a lot of corn back then. It got to where I could walk around outside about 30 or 40 yards from them and they didn't care.

gary, it had gotten up to one buck and one doe a day in alabama then 5 or 6 years ago they started a tagging system.  i think but i'm not sure that you can take three bucks and i'm not sure about does anymore.  i haven't hunted deer in alabama since 2010 or 2011.  i started hunting in georgia back in 2010.  i'll probably do some squirrel hunting in tuskeegee national forrest in january and february but i'm done with deer for this season.

This is very true. I see the pictures of young 7,8, or 9 year old hunters shooting these massive 10 or 12 points as their first deer. It makes you wonder what they have to look forward to. I remember shooting a spike if I was lucky and being tickled to death. A doe was a big deal. But I guess a doe won't keep kids attention now a days. They need 40 or 50 deer feeding in a field to stay interested. I can't tell you how many hunts I sat in a stand watching birds or the stray raccoon for 5 hours.

This is my first year ever trying deer hunting. A 28-year-old Georgia boy and I've only been out there "hunting" 7 times so far this year.. Didn't see any but I'm pretty sure I heard some. I've always LOVED getting out into the woods; and for a skinny kid, I love food. Last year my twin brother and I got into squirrel hunting and had a BLAST so I tried for deer a little this year--it is entirely different from squirrels. We'd take this little red feist out with us for squirrels and we plan to do it again, this year! Oh, and we call him "Stinky Pete"

Question:  will deer mess with beehives if you put beehives where deer may be?

one of my stands sits by 9 hives and there are track under it sometimes.  the deer won't be a problem but coons, skunks and bears can be.
i'm wanting to get a feist around february so i can hunt squirrel next year.  are you hunting deer in a club, private land or public land?

I was happy to get a nice eight-pointer opening weekend.
One of my sons bagged a seven-pointer. But was equally enthused about the porcupine he walked up to and took pics of.
Like Vance, we processed our meat in the unheated garage so I know how cold your hands were! It seemed like the hides were glued on. I finally brought the quarters into the house to debone.

Last year I made a corned beef venison roast. OMG! It was amazing! I got the sodium nitrite from a small meat market. Im glad to hear I can buy it from Morton because the butcher was reluctant to sell me a small quantity. Something about controlled substance or something. Still dont understand what his problem was.
Going to try the recipe link. Thanks!

A fine fine venison soup is simmering and about to get froze for future consumption.  A roasted shoulderblade and the femur I think, attached make a tough if flavorful roast with onions, potatoes, carrots and neeps seasoned with Alpine touch, pepper, bay leaf and mustard seed.  Then a pkg of McCormick onion soup mix and one of mushroom gravy mix.  Of course some olive oil in the bottom.

 Then comes the soup.  simmer all the leftovers and salt and pepper to taste.  Set on the deck in the big refrigerator so you can skim the tallow off the top.  Thicken with barley flour and add more of the same veggies if warranted by leftovers. 

Now out to the garage to pluck and draw honkers.  I have a great recipe for them too.  Life is good but it is still 4 and 1/2 months til dandelions.
